Sometimes it’s just love at first sight. That’s what happened when I stumbled upon Forestbound. The silhouette of their bags just made me so nostalgic. It’s pretty rare to find an emotional connection to a company’s product without having ever touched it or seen it in real life. It is the mark of something really special.

Forestbound has a lot of incredible and beautiful products – bags, accessories, and a whole host of vintage items from a time past. Even their “new” items are made exclusively with found and salvaged textiles.

Alice Saunders is the talent behind Forestbound. A Boston-based designer, she puts incredible effort (which is certainly noticeable) into hunting for well-loved fabrics throughout New England. You can be sure that a lot of love goes in to each one-of-a-kind Forestbound item.
